Huldit Bike Lock Holder Review | The Best Universal Bike Lock Mount

If you’ve been looking for a way to mount your U lock to your bike and transport that awkwardly heavy bike lock whilst cycling, keep reading.

The Huldit U Lock Bike Mount provides a durable and affordable way to transport your bike lock. 

Several of the best cheap bike locks on the market offer fantastic levels of security for your bike. However, these cheaper locks are often supplied with nasty plastic U lock bike mounts.

Cheap U lock (D lock) mounts will often break within weeks and may even scratch or damage your bike. In other words, it’s worth investing in a good quality bike lock mounting system.

If you need a bike lock mount, the Huldit can help. Find out more below!

The Huldit comes in four different sizes and is capable of carrying almost any U lock.  I’ll help you choose the right size for your U lock below.

Below I’ll also let you know the benefits the Huldit U lock Holster offers as well as a few alternative D lock mounts.

    The Huldit Bike Lock Holder / U Lock Holster

    Unlike cheap bike lock mounts, the Huldit Bike Lock Holder puts a layer of soft, durable fabric between your bike’s frame and your lock.

    This means, no more scratches, no more loud rattling noises and no more uncomfortable bike rides! What’s more, the Huldit retails at a very affordable price.

    Designed and made in California USA, the Huldit Bike Lock mount is designed to last. The straps it uses are made from a durable paracord-like material.

    The reverse of the Huldit Mount is lined with rubber strands. These stop the Huldit sliding around whilst you're cycling and prevent it from damaging the paintwork of your bike!

    The stitching on the Huldit is very precise and gives this bike lock mount a very sturdy feeling.

    Unlike other bike lock mounts, the Huldit doesn’t require screws or bolts to attach your u lock to your bike.

    Instead, it uses heavy-duty Velcro straps, which are lined with grippy rubber strands to keep the Huldit in place when transporting your U lock.

    Huldit Mount Size Guide

    As explained above, there are four different sizes of Huldit Bike Lock Holders available: Extra Small, Small, Medium & Large.

    Below I’ve put together a table showing what size U locks work with each size of Huldit Mount.

    Once you’ve decided which size you need, click your required size to be taken to the Huldit product page.

    Huldit Mount Size Width of U Lock (D Lock)
    Extra-Small 3.8 to 4.1" (9.6 to 10.4cm)
    Small 4.5 to 5" (11.4 to 12.7cm)
    Medium 5 to 5.9" (12.7 to 14.9cm)
    Large Wider than 5.9"

    To measure your bike lock’s width, you’ll need a ruler or tape measure. I used a digital ruler to give the most precise reading.

    If your U lock’s width overlaps the size of two Huldit mounts, I’d recommend you opt for the larger size.

    Using the Huldit Bike Lock Holder

    I went for a ride with several different locks attached to my bike, using the Huldit D Lock Bike Mount.

    I’ll tell you now, I love the Huldit. Compared to other mounting systems, locks mounted in the Huldit are considerably quieter when riding.

    Before producing my Huldit Bike Lock Holder review, I was a bit sceptical of how well the Velcro would hold up against some of the heavier U locks

    The Huldit doesn't struggle with heavier locks and is easily able to cope with the weight of the Fahgettaboudit Mini D lock - 4.55lb (2.06kg)

    However, the Huldit mount didn’t break a sweat with my Kryptonite Fahgettaboudit U lock or the Skunklock, two bulky bike locks.

    There’s no denying the Huldit isn’t as suave as the Walley Leather mount, which is featured in our review of the best universal bike lock mounts

    Have a read of this comparative review to find out how the Huldit compares to other universal mounts. 

    How to Attach the Huldit Bike Lock Holder to Your Bicycle?

    Attaching the Huldit U lock Mount is super easy and only takes a minute. First, you need to choose where you’d like to mount the Huldit.

    Mounting options will vary for different bike frames, but normally you should be able to mount the Huldit at the front or rear of your top tube. Once you’ve chosen the position, follow the instructions below.

    Two different mounting positions for the Huldit Bike Lock Mount.

    First, remove your Huldit Bike Lock Holder from its packaging and remove the shackle strap.

    Next, unfasten the Velcro mounting straps on the back of the Huldit mount.

    Now, wrap the Velcro straps around the frame of your bike, through the plastic buckle and pull tight before securing Velcro pads.

    Then, insert your bike lock and attach the securing strap in position to secure the lower part of the U lock’s shackle.

    Finally, your Huldit Bike Lock Holder is good to go! When using a different U lock (D lock), readjust the straps to the size of your new lock.

    How Much Does the Huldit U Lock Mount Cost?

    If you’ve been transporting your U lock around your handlebars or bike frame and it’s started to cause damage, the Huldit is an affordable and practical solution to this problem.

    Similarly if you’ve been carrying a heavy lock in your backpack and it’s not comfortable or takes up too much space in your bag, the Huldit will take the strain off you.

    For how practical and durable to Huldit is, I originally expected it to be much more expensive than other U lock mounts.

    However, it’s actually sold at a very affordable price, especially for a mount that’ll last years!

    The best deal I found for the Huldit was on their website here.

    What's the Best Bike Lock Mount for the Skunklock?

    The Skunklock isn’t supplied with a mounting bracket, which is an issue. The Skunklock is an expensive & heavy bike lock, and you might be asking yourself how to mount the Skunklock to a bike?

    When I tested the Skunklock with the Large Huldit mount, it worked perfectly. The Huldit U Lock Holster was able to cope with the Skunklock’s weight.

    Best Bike Lock Mount for Skunklock = Huldit Large
    The Skunklock is one of the largest D locks I own. The Huldit (large) was easily able to deal with its size.

    Using the Huldit means, I don’t have to carry the Skunklock in my backpack. On longer rides, the Skunklock is bulky and weighty to carry, the Huldit U lock Mount made these longer journeys much more comfortable!

    The Huldit Bike Lock Holder is definitely the best bike lock mount for the Skunklock. I’d recommend the Large size Huldit mount for the Skunklock.

    What's the Best Mount for Kryptonite Bike Locks?

    Several of Kryptonite’s U locks (D locks) don’t come with bike lock mounts. On top of that, (after testing) the standard kryptonite U lock mount is fiddly to attach and doesn’t work very well.

    If you use a Kryptonite U lock and need a better mount that will hold your bike lock securely in place, I’d recommend the Huldit mount.

    The Kryptonite Fahgettaboudit Mini and several of the Kryptonite New York U locks aren’t supplied with a mounting bracket as they are too large.

    Best bike lock mount for kryptonite fahgettaboudit
    As one of my primary bike lock, I'll now be using the Huldit to transport my Fahgettaboudit Mini.

    When I used the Fahgettaboudit Mini with the Huldit Bike Lock Mount, I had no issues and was surprised by how quiet this mount was whilst riding.

    The Huldit Mount is the best mount for the Kryptonite Fahgettaboudit and is a better way to mount your Kryptonite U lock than any of Kryptonite’s mounting systems.

    If you need a bike lock mount for the Kryptonite Fahgettaboudit Mini, the Medium Huldit will work best. You can view the most up to date price here.

    What's the Best Mount for ABUS Bike Locks (U Lock)?

    Several of ABUS’ larger locks don’t come with a mount, which is an issue, especially if you don’t wear a backpack whilst cycling.

    Before using the Huldit, I wasn’t able to mount my ABUS Granit X-Plus 54 Mini and ABUS Granit Extreme 59/180HB U locks. But now I have no issues.

    The ABUS Granit Extreme 59/180HB is one if the biggest and bulkiest locks, but the Huldit didn't struggle to carry it!

    The ABUS Granit Extreme 59/180HB is one of the heaviest U locks on the market, weighing 5.95lb (2.7kg). However, the large Huldit Bike Lock Holder worked well with it and was able to cope with its weight.

    The same goes for the ABUS Granit X-Plus 54 Mini. It doesn’t have a mounting system, but the best mount I’ve found for it is definitely the medium Huldit Bike Lock Holder.

    What's the Best Mount for Pragmasis DIB D Lock

    You can see where this is going! The Pragmasis DIB D Lock isn’t supplied with a mounting bracket.

    Weighing 3.75lb (1.7kg) (19cm shackle) the DIB D lock is another hefty D lock and carrying it in your backpack makes your journey less comfortable.

    Pragmasis don't sell a mount for the DIB D lock. Don't worry, the Huldit's got you! (Medium)

    The medium Huldit Bike Lock Holder worked really well with the Pragmasis DIB D lock, and kept it out of the way whilst I was cycling.

    If you need a bike lock mount for your Pragmasis DIB D Lock, the medium Huldit Bike Lock Holder is your best option.

    What's the Best Mount for OnGuard Bike Locks?

    After reviewing the OnGuard Brute and the OnGuard Pitbull, I can safely say the mounts supplied with OnGuard’s locks are some of the worst on the market.

    At the same time, the locks OnGuard produce provide a seriously impressive level of protection for your bike. Especially when you consider they’re some of the best cheap bike locks on the market.

    So many of these cheap plastic mounting systems break within a few weeks. So if you’re looking for an OnGuard Bike Lock Mount, and want a U lock mount that’s going to last, pick the Huldit.

    The OnGuard Brute works well with the Large Huldit Bike Lock Holder, and the OnGuard Pitbull works with either the medium or large Huldit D Lock Mount.

    Conclusion - Huldit Bike Lock Holder Review

    While the Huldit bike lock mount isn’t made from naturally tanned leather like other top-performing universal bike lock mounts, it has the ability to transport a wider variety of U locks.

    The Huldit mount is designed for your everyday cyclist and works with almost any bike frame.

    There’s no need for additional accessories to attach the Huldit to your bike. Everything is included upon purchase, and the Huldit retails at a very affordable price.

    I’m not a huge fan of Velcro because, as we all know, it becomes less secure over time. However, the Velcro that the Huldit uses is heavy-duty and was specifically selected to cope with the heaviest bike locks.
